“I have been coming to you almost since you have opened your practice approximately 20 years ago. You have always been able to correct any of the problems that I might have had. Over the years from my playing of sports and my various jobs, i.e. landscaping and office furniture delivery, things have gotten progressively worse. About one year ago, I had extreme pain in my lower back. I had told Dr. Zammito about this and he adjusted me. The pain had lessened, but not totally. He had suggested getting a MRI to find out more of what was going on. Upon doing this and having the results read, he had told me I had a herniated and bulging disc. We sat down and talked about a course of action. He said there is the new technique using a machine called the DRX 9000 that actually pulls the spine to allow less pressure on the discs and allow the discs to realign themselves. By doing this there are less pressure points for the discs to touch. I agreed to the treatment and had gone through the whole series. The treatment starts out slowly with low weight and each treatment the weight gets heavier. Even with is all that is felt is a gentle pull and pressure. Between doing the treatment and exercises my back has never felt so good. Every once in a while I do feel a little twinge but does disappear usually within an hour. I am now able to do things I normally could not do and not have to really worry about as long as I do not do something stupid. All I can say is I am totally happy with the results of the DRX and would not hesitate to suggest its use to anyone.”
